Chipping Campden Literature Festival 2015

Tuesday 5th May to Sunday 10th May  

Sponsored by Campden Gallery  

In Partnership with Chipping Campden School  

On the theme Relationships

Welcome to the sixth independent Literature Festival in Chipping Campden, celebrating the joy of reading and the sharing of ideas. Throughout the festival we are proud to present a varied programme of illustrated talks, readings, interviews, discussion, film, performance and music. The theme for 2015 is Relationships:humankind’s relationships with one another as well as with the past, with places, and with the environment, the landscape and the natural world. Participants present and discuss the many different forms of the written word: the historical novel, the novel of self-discovery, the biographical novel and the short story; diary; memoir; blog; a radio ‘soap’ script; plays; social, legal, cultural, theological and political history; correspondence; travelogue; biography; personal essay; and poetry. On the festival Saturday we are excited to be able to make our contribution to the Magna Carta 2015 800th Anniversary Commemoration events. And for those who enjoy being creative, there are practical workshops: notebook binding; family memoir; and lino-cut and letter press, celebrating respectively books as objects of beauty, the art of writing, and the printed word. Once again I would like to thank the festival’s principal sponsors Guy and Carole Cohen of Campden Gallery, the festival stockist:, and the main venue Chipping Campden School.
